RIP Routing Configuration using Three Routers in Cisco Packet Tracer

Posted: 29 Apr 2020 in CCNA

RIP Routing Configuration using Three Routers in Cisco Packet Tracer.Just to show you how to configure RIP Routing in few easy steps I have written this article. For RIP Routing Demonstration I have used Cisco Packet Tracer Software. The number of Routers used for this RIP routing Lab are three.I have shown RIPv2 configuration using cisco packet tracer.And I have also shown how to check which routing protocol is configured on a Router if you are new to The Company.

Total Number of Networks is Four:

  • First Network is
  • Second network is
  • Third Network is
  • Fourth Network is

Step 1: Assign IP Address on Router0:



Router#config t

Router(config)#host R0

R0(config)#int fa0/0

R0(config-if)#ip add

R0(config-if)#no shut

R0(config)#int fa0/1
R0(config-if)#ip add
R0(config-if)#no shut


Step 2: Assign IP Address on Router1:


Router(config)#host R1

R1(config)#int fa0/0

R1(config-if)#ip add

R1(config-if)#no shut


R1(config)#int fa0/1

R1(config-if)#ip add

R1(config-if)#no shut



Step 3: Assign IP Address on Router2:


Router#config t

Router(config)#host R2

R2(config)#int fa0/0

R2(config-if)#ip add

R2(config-if)#no shut

R2(config)#int fa0/1
R2(config-if)#ip add
R2(config-if)#no shut


Step 4: Configure RIP routing on Router R0:

R0(config)#router rip

R0(config-router)#version 2




Step 5: Configure RIP routing on Router R1:

R1(config)#router rip

R1(config-router)#version 2




Step 6: Configure RIP routing on Router R2:

R2(config)#router rip

R2(config-router)#version 2




Cross Verify RIP route Configuration on Router R0 using show ip route command:

R0#show ip route

Codes: C – connected, S – static, I – IGRP, R – RIP, M – mobile, B – BGP

D – EIGRP, EX – EIGRP external, O – OSPF, IA – OSPF inter area

N1 – OSPF NSSA external type 1, N2 – OSPF NSSA external type 2

E1 – OSPF external type 1, E2 – OSPF external type 2, E – EGP

i – IS-IS, L1 – IS-IS level-1, L2 – IS-IS level-2, ia – IS-IS inter area

* – candidate default, U – per-user static route, o – ODR

P – periodic downloaded static route

Gateway of last resort is not set

C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/0

C is directly connected, FastEthernet0/1

R [120/1] via, 00:00:18, FastEthernet0/1

R [120/2] via, 00:00:18, FastEthernet0/1


Cross Verify Routing Protocol on Router R1 using Show ip protocols command:

R1#show ip protocols

Routing Protocol is “rip”

Sending updates every 30 seconds, next due in 0 seconds

Invalid after 180 seconds, hold down 180, flushed after 240

Outgoing update filter list for all interfaces is not set

Incoming update filter list for all interfaces is not set

Redistributing: rip

Default version control: send version 2, receive 2

Interface Send Recv Triggered RIP Key-chain

FastEthernet0/0 2 2

FastEthernet0/1 2 2

Automatic network summarization is in effect

Maximum path: 4

Routing for Networks:

Passive Interface(s):

Routing Information Sources:

Gateway Distance Last Update 120 00:00:10 120 00:00:05

Distance: (default is 120)
